He has great offensive abilities to go along with his defensive prowess. I think the gap that so many people think between RNH and Couts offensive game won't be there in few years.
Fair enough, IMO RNH has much higher offensive potential. Maybe it's just me but I think Couts will turn out very similar to J.Staal (who is no slouch, 25g in 62gp last season).
